#Collabfest2020 beer 18: Cherrytale Of Paris (Le Marais x Les Cuves de Fauve, amber, 6.90%)

Le Marais certainly picked the right week to put out a beer that references Fairytale Of New York. (Although to be honest, that whole row seems to break out in November every year now. My favourite alternative lyric, frequently quoted on Twitter without attribution, is the period-specific 'you scumbag, you maggot, you've taped over Taggart'.) Anyway, I can now reveal that our MASSIVELY SUCCESSFUL dinner experiment involved the creation of a meat-free version of BrewDog's Jackpot burger, which required a heroic effort from The BBG to create a vegetarian black pudding from scratch. And this beer works terrifically with it. On Untappd, the pithy description of this as 'amber' is expanded to 'strong British amber ale aged on medium-toast French oak & Scotch whisky-infused candied cherries', and if that doesn't excite you as an idea then I'll leave you to your Budweiser. Possibly a little under-carbonated, but otherwise firing on all cylinders, with the fruit and the barrel aging combining in all sorts of mysterious ways.
